Blade Runner 2049 actress Ana de Armas has become the latest addition to the cast of Wasp Network, an upcoming spy drama from director Olivier Assayas (Personal Shopper).
Based on Fernando Morais’ book The Last Soldiers of the Cold War, Wasp Network will tell the true story of “Cuban spies in American territory during the 1990s when anti-Castro groups based in Florida carried out military attacks on Cuba, and the Cuban government struck back with the Wasp Network to infiltrate those organizations.”
De Armas joins a cast that also includes Edgar Ramirez (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story), Pedro Pascal (Narcos), Penelope Cruz (Everybody Knows), Gael Garcia Bernal (Mozart in the Jungle) and Wagner Moura (Narcos).
Filming on Wasp Network is set to get underway later this month in Cuba.
